I only gained about 37 lbs my entire twin pg - less in fact than my second singleton pg. Like you, I was eating like a mad woman - every two hours round the clock, and tons of healthy foods, healthy fats, lots of protein, etc. I was even on bedrest part of that time and not moving much at all.
I gave birth at 37 weeks 5 days to two perfectly healthy girls, 5 lbs 5 oz and 5 lbs 6 oz. They came home with us the next day. Considering that my full term singletons were only 6 lbs 8 oz, and I am small in stature, that was a pretty good weight.
I gained a ton of weight at first, and then around 25 weeks or so my weight gain stalled. I think I gained 5 lbs the last trimester. It was crazy.
It sounds like you are fine. If you have been told you are eating the right foods and your babes are growing well, I wouldn't worry.
